Nobody looks forward to the day that they have to replace their furnace. Sadly, it’s part of life, and Wheeling homeownership, and so is budgeting for a new furnace. So when that awful day finds you, where do you start?
The cost of a new furnace will vary depending on multiple factors, like the lifestyle and behaviors of individuals in the home. Health ailments may also mean you need air filtration systems, which also helps determine which furnace is right for your home. Even hobbies can help you decide which furnace is right for you. Does anyone collect art or is anyone a wine connoisseur? Humidity levels can alter the integrity of these items so you may have to include a whole-home humidifier in your heating and air conditioning system.
Another thing to take a look at is your actual home. How many windows does your home have and which direction are they facing? What sort of insulation is currently installed and how well does it trap air inside? How efficient the ductwork is, the chosen power (gas, solar, etc.), and even home layout can go into deciding which furnace is right for you.
Comfort Masters Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will set-up a complimentary consultation where they will visit your home and analyze your current set-up. The technician will go over your options with you and give you a free estimate on a new furnace installation based on their review of your home’s structure and unique characteristics.
Another factor that will go into determining the price of your furnace is which company you hire to install your system. One company may have the equipment you want at a lower cost, but proceed with caution and confirm that they are licensed, bonded, and insured given something should occur while they’re on your premises. In the event a contractor was injured on your property and the contractor was not insured, you can be held liable.
